Advent is one of my favorite seasons. There is just something special in the air around Christmas. This excitement spills over into our church and into our worship. So much of our Christmas music is steeped in tradition. It is filled with nostalgia and often times feels like home.
For Advent at Christ Church, you will hear Christmas classics like Silent Night and Joy to the World. You will also hear some newer pieces of music in both our Traditional and Modern gatherings.
I challenge you to hear Christmas music differently this year.
Don't let it just whisk you away to traditions from your childhood. Be present with the songs. Think about how Christ's coming to earth is still relevant in your life today. Above all, I invite you to sing the anew this year! As we sing "O come let us adore him" or proclaim "Let earth receive her king" it is our hope that we do gather around Christ and adore him and that ALL would receive Christ as king. This is a special time! I look forward to worshiping with you all!
